Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has a defense against allegations that he is a serial plagiarist. It's the fault of his staff. Here's the official word from his office, per The Washington Post:

"In the thousands of speeches and op-eds Sen. Paul has produced, he has always presented his own ideas, opinions and conclusions," senior adviser Doug Stafford said in a statement. "Sen. Paul also relies on a large number of staff and advisers to provide supporting facts and anecdotes — some of which were not clearly sourced or vetted properly."

Speaking on CNN, Rand added:

"Ultimately, I'm the boss, and things go out under my name, so it is my fault," he said. "I never had intentionally presented anyone's ideas as my own."
